Swedish House Mafia reveals details of its March Los Angeles dates

Adding to news that its extremely triumphant single “Don’t You Worry Child” had moved up a spot to No. 6 on the Hot 100, Swedish House Mafia on Wednesday announced details of its upcoming two-night stand at Los Angeles State Historic Park.

The Stockholm-based DJ trio -- Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso -- will headline the so-called Masquerade Motel on March 8 and 9, part of a world tour the group says will be its final go-around before retiring (and then reuniting, no doubt, five years from now at Coachella).

For the March 8 show, Swedish House Mafia is to headline a main-stage bill that also features fellow Swedes Alesso and Otto Knows; Nero and Sub Focus will appear on a second stage. On March 9, the lineup will swell with the addition of Zedd, who following work last year with Justin Bieber is reportedly producing Lady Gaga’s upcoming “ARTPOP” album.


Prior to its L.A. dates, the group is scheduled to play a string of mega gigs in New York, including a March 1 stop at Madison Square Garden with the great Armand Van Helden. And after checking out of the Masquerade Motel, Swedish House Mafia is due in Miami, where it will open and close the annual Ultra Music Festival.

Watch the video for “Don’t You Worry Child” below, but be warned: Enthusiastic fist-pumping is likely to ensue.
